How My Father Brought Italian Food to the WestDAISY - 2008
Genesio (Gene) Cioni was sixteen when he left Italy in the 1920s to find a vibrant, close-knit Italian community in the burgeoning city of Calgary. Gene left behind the barber trade to follow his passion for food and cooking, as he worked his way up from busboy to cook to become one of western Canada's first celebrity chefs. His daughter Maria's recollections of growing up in the family restaurant bring alive the food and treasured traditions that enriched her family's life. Includes recipes. 2006.
